So, the weather isn't so great right now. Not terrible, but not great. We had a few nice days last week, then we had a couple of pretty bad thunderstorms complete with hail. Global Climate Change can be such a bitch.
So, since it doesn't look like I'll be doing much gardening the next few days, perhaps I can get caught up posting on what I HAVE done.
Let's get started, shall we?
I think I'll start off with problems. Not to be a downer, but I'd rather get those out of the way. First, my tomatoes.
I finally planted the vegetable garden on June 5th. I found a couple of double metal hooks for my tomatoes and put them up. I stupidly used dirt from the garden itself which proved to be too heavy for the hooks so I dumped the dirt and replaced it with potting soil. Amazingly enough, the three tomato plants and one Green Pepper plant survived the ordeal and looked pretty nice.
So, I lay the plants on their sides until the ground dried up a bit.

They have all done well, despite falling right on the ground, as you can see below. They're all growing. Hopefully they'll flower soon.
Anyone have any ideas?
